What Can You Do For A Broken Toe?

Teri Landreth Townsquare Media

I realize that this picture is less than pretty, not only from not having a much needed pedicure in a few weeks, but because 3 out of 5 toes didn’t make it while settling into our new house!  In fact, I think they’re broken!

Over the weekend, my husband and I had some friends who came up to help us put together our newly moved in Cheyenne home.  My friend Tina and I were running around on Sunday getting some much needed curtains to hang up before the neighbors start a riot, while the boys stayed home to assemble some cabinets and shelves.  When we got back home, all I wanted to do is kick off my shoes after running around from one place to the next, and that’s when it happened, a toe stub that took out not 1, but 3 toes in the process!

My friend Nathan was helping my husband hang up a cabinet, and when he asked me to come out to see if it was hung strait, I came out of the bedroom and was walking into the living room, not noticing all of the tools scattered all over the floor.  I was walking towards our friend and said “what did you need?”  That statement was followed by a slew of words that need not bear repeating, since I was wincing in pain after ramming my foot against a tool case!  OUCH!

My 3 middle toes are swollen like balloons, and I’m pretty sure that they’re broken, but what to do for a broken toe, or, in my case, toes?

Many people have told me that going to a doctor to get them checked out is a waste of time, not to mention money, because apparently, there’s nothing they can do for a broken toe, except to tape the toes together and hope for the best.  I tore through some boxes hoping to find some medical tape, thinking that if I don’t find it, there’s tons of duct tape in the garage. (Okay, I admit, that might be a little too redneck, even for me!) I managed to find the right tape to try and wrap around my toes, most of the tape sticking together and sticking to everything else except my injured toes.  I finally managed to go through the entire roll of tape to get the job done.  However, I don’t think I have a shoe in the house that’ll fit over this knotted mess, so shoeless it is, at least for a while.

Have you ever had a broken toe, and if so, what did you do and how long did it take for your toe to heal?
